IonActive Facial at k:SPA

It's that time of year again; the weather is turning, heating is on and skin starts to look and feel dull and dry. As much as you've tried to ignore it, Christmas is looming and we all want to look and feel great as we enter the party season.

NOW is the perfect time to re-evaluate your skincare routine as we move into the Winter months and also to take a look at what professional treatments will give you the results you are looking for.

Why do I need an IonActive Facial?

Challenging skin conditions such as premature skin ageing, acne and dehydration often need more intense, invasive treatments in order to show dramatic results. However, not everyone has the time for such treatments. The IonActive Facial allows your skin to receive the benefits of an intensified treatment in only 45 minutes, with no discomfort.

How does it work?

Performed by an Expert Dermalogica skin therapist, the IonActive facial works with the skin’s natural biology to yield enhanced benefits. Each treatment is completely personalised according to your Face Mapping® skin analysis, which helps determine which key active concentrates will be applied to your skin. Available concentrates include:

  • Retinol - to firm and reduce visible signs of skin ageing.
  • Niacinamide - to control and prevent adult acne breakouts.
  • Hyaluronic Acid - to relieve dehydrated and/or sensitised skin.
  • Oligopeptide -  to brighten hyperpigmentation for a more balanced and even skin tone.

After these actives are applied to the skin, they become “supercharged” with thermal activity generated by your skin therapist, who uses heating or cooling Gelloids (massage medium-masque hybrids) and the latest ultrasonic technology to drive ingredients faster and further into your skin.

What can I expect?

Expect to feel immediately revived and refreshed! Results will depend on your skin condition and how frequently you receive an IonActive facial, but they can include brighter, revitalised skin; fewer visible fine lines and wrinkles; fewer visible breakouts; improved skin texture and more balanced skin tone. Most clients notice visible results right away, and see even more progress over the course of several treatments.

Post-treatment care

Your skin condition, skin concerns and dedication to post-treatment care will also impact the frequency and results of your IonActive facial. To maintain the results of your treatments at home, we will provide you with a prescription of your own customised Dermalogica skin care regimen.
